Boy Scout Troop 407 is planning the 12th Annual Pleasant Mount Firecracker 5K Race!

For Troop 407, this event is an annual fundraiser to support the scouts and their participation at summer camp. This 6-day camp helps the scouts with their physical, social and mental development. Young people are our future – and scouting plays an integral role in developing our young scouts into tomorrow’s community leaders.

Equally important, the Firecracker 5K kicks off the Fourth of July celebration in Pleasant Mount, PA. Following the race, the community comes together for a wonderful holiday parade, followed by festivities and celebration at the Pleasant Mount Community Center. Anyone who has attended in years past knows that Independence Day represents the heart and soul of small town USA.

Participants are able to choose to run or walk the event course. However, all participants must be able to complete the event within one hour, as the parade immediately follows.

The race will start promptly at 7:30 am, on Thursday, July 4th. They are using a professional timer – Finish Strong Timing, LLC – and all 5K participants will have chipped numbers for accurate and quick results.
